Using the pocket holes in your 9 1/4 pcs, attach them flush to the bottom of two of your 36" pcs of 2x3. The 36" pcs will be facing out and the 9 1/4 pcs will be the other way to create an edge. Mount your 9 1/4 pcs 1/4" from the edge of the 36" pc. Screw your second pc of 9 1/4" 2 x 3 at 14 1/2" from the top of the 36" pc. Repeat for other side. View Image.

The 50 1/4 inch gets mounted at the bottom. The 49 3/4 pcs of 1x10 gets mounted in the middle. A quarter inch reveal was left because I routered all the edges and this makes for a nice finish. Mount the top shelf evenly spaced on the top.
